2015 Season Preview: #38 RPI Engineers

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Coach: Jon Satkowski Location: Troy, NY Preseason ranking: #38 The RPI Engineers, located in upstate New York, are a team that I never thought I would be writing about at the beginning of last season, as the Engineers were essentially a less-talented version of MIT, right down to the team name. However,…

Rapid Reaction: Pool C Changes

If any of you have been following the writers on twitter today, something huge came out of the ITA convention of all things DIII tennis.  While I was out galavanting through the streets of who knows where in a santa costume, crazy things went down in the DIII world.  As of right now, Pool C…

2015 Season Preview: #6 Middlebury Panthers

Middlebury 2014-2015 Season Preview             Well hello again boys and girls! After a mini blog hiatus, the powers that be suspended me for my negative and insensitive comments about The Guru, #FreeD3NE, I’m back with my first season preview! I know you all have been yearning for my rambling style and unnecessarily long posts, so…

2015 Season Preview: #36 MIT

Greetings, D3 tennis community! In my season previews, I will be covering twelve different schools spanning every region. Since every school I am covering is outside the top thirty, I will be doing something a little bit different in my previews. I’ll start by going through each team’s lineup, and then I will discuss what…

Wallach (Bates) Invitational Recap

Overshadowed by #SmallCollegeNationals and the Amherst weekend was the annual Wallach Invitational at Bates College.  I’ve always thought of this tournament as the little brother to the Middlebury Invite, as Midd really kicks off the northeast season, and the Wallach closes it out.  Regardless, I really like this tournament because you can see how everybody…

Amherst Rolls the A-South: A Weekend in Review

What a great weekend! I slept late, ate poorly, got sporadic results from the Bates Invitational (more on that tomorrow), and took D3AS down from his Fantasy Football pedestal (Kendall Wright…lol). But perhaps most importantly, the Amherst Jeffs reminded the rest of the country just who the defending national champions are. Amherst, who the writers…

Not-So Rapid Reaction: Amherst/Hop and Match Preview Herst/CMU

If you didn’t know, Hopkins played Amherst today in a battle of potential top 5 and most definitely top 10 teams in the upcoming year.  The match was played on the new Johns Hopkins courts, which is a great way to bring in the season and the new complex.  Thing is, there were no scorecards. …

Women’s New England and Northeast ITA Recaps!!!

New England Recap I am seriously late with my review and am expecting a big cut in my salary, but following the format of my counterpart, @D3Northeast, I did a report card for each regionally ranked (from the spring) team in the New England and Northeast ITA regionals. Let’s start with the much stronger of…

Fall Nationals – A Joint Preview

Fall ITA Nationals technically start in 40 minutes with the play-in matchup of Hewlin (Whitman) and Krull (Trinity TX), so this preview kind of needs to go out.  I’m getting real nervous here writing this paragraph because I’m scared the commenters will behead me and burn me at the stake if this goes out at…

ITA Recaps: New England Edition

  The Blog has been on its game of late, and because of this I’ve been allowed to attend the other aspects of my life. I’ve heard the birds chirping, the wind blowing, and the people laughing. Let me tell you, I can’t stand most birds, the wind is cold, and I certainly hate people. Maybe…
